I already told you one. The best one. Make your league fun, fair, and honest. If you do that, people who think your league is not fair, not fun, or not honest can pound sand. All other LO's I know think the same way, as does the APA. A league operator who raises skill levels unfairly is no better than a player who wants to lower theirs unfairly. And I still have room to expand. I don't have the locations full seven nights a week and twice on weekends.I’ll take your point about not raising a hcp in 25 years. But, you are in a unique situation. Most LOs have room to expand. I’ve never seen a business model where a business owner didn’t want to expand his customer base. In our area, new teams form when people leave a team and wants to start another team. The person leaving usually has a hcp that WONT allow him to play on the team. A 3 gets raised to a 4, a 5 gets raised to a 6. Suddenly a 7 can’t play with the 23 rule. Tell me a better way to get more teams than raising handicaps? It’s worked here for years. Just because you haven’t seen it doesn’t mea it’s not true.
